Winemaker's Notes:

Exploding with loads of small bubbles, the bouquet is full of ripe peach, apple cider, menthol, guava, persimmon, bubblegum and spearmint.

The entry is light but the texture builds as the wine sits across the palate, the sweetness makes an early impact and then is followed by lovely and pristine fruits of melon, grapefruit and cider. The acid profile helps everything stay in check and carries the fizz factor through with the slowly drying fruit to the late palate. This is a really fun drink which will bring many smiles.

About Two Hands Wines:

Two Hands Wines was founded in 1999 by Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz. Their aim was, and still is, to produce the best possible wines from prized Shiraz growng regions throughout Australia. "Quality without compromise" is a core value that drives all decisions from fruit and oak selection to packaging and promotion. Winemaker Matt Wenk has been with Two Hands since 2002 and, together with Michael Twelftree, oversees every aspect of the winemaking process. Their flagship Shiraz, Ares, represents the very best parcels in each vintage and is sselected through an intense barrel classification process. This blend of Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale Shiraz displays the incredible depth of flavor and balance that are hallmarks of this wine.
